When you write a song for your beloved that becomes a massive hit for 25 years, how do you up the ante?  In Deborah Zoe Laufer’s play Sirens,  Sam is attempting to do just that.  However, while on a Mediterranean cruise celebrating his Silver Anniversary with his wife, Sam hears the most beautiful music ever, jumps overboard, and winds up on the Siren’s island. There he must struggle with the seductions of the Siren, the terrors of middle age, and the tortures of creative failure.  Ultimately, he must find a way to get home and win his wife back.  For ticket sales and more information, please visit RATTheatre.org.

It’s cold and wet outside, and you want to warm your bellies and your bodies.  What better way to do that than with a hot bowl of hearty soup.
